9th Mining and Exploration Forum MINEX Russia was held in Radisson Slavyanskaya hotel in Moscow from 1 – 3 October 2013.  

The Forum is one of the largest and most prominent events addressing issues of exploration, mining and processing of solid minerals in Russia.  This year's forum was attended by more than 650 leaders and managers of mining companies and public organisations from Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Ukraine and the countries of the European Economic Community, North America, Africa, Asia and Australia. 

Main topic of the Forum this year was "Mining in a challenging economic environment."  MINEX Forum provided a powerful incentive for the exchange of experiences and finding the best solutions to increase efficiency and investment attractiveness of Russian mining companies.  The Forum  agenda consisted of  more than 100 reports and technical  presentations representing  Russian and international experience in improving the efficiency of the mining enterprises and the development of business in the face of declining commodity prices and reducing opportunities for financing of mining projects.

The Forum traditionally provided diversified platform for business meetings, signing of agreements as well as for organising presentations on many aspects of mining and mineral exploration in Russia and covering wide range of topics from modern technologies for prospecting and exploration of new fields to financing mining projects and setting up  international partnerships.   Many bilateral and multilateral meetings with government delegations, business people and investors were held during the Forum.
